Not Waiting Dumbly

“Christians do not believe that God is dumbly ‘out there,’ like a mountain waiting to be climbed by various religious searchers. On the contrary, God, like the hound of heaven in Francis Thompson’s poem, comes relentlessly searching after us.”  That is a quote from Bishop Barron’s commentary on the gospel of Wed., April 27, 2022 from St. John.

Have you noticed how what happens to you adds up to someone looking for you?  Things fall into place in God’s favor?  Believe, just believe.  There’s a way to escape, but who wants that?  Who wants oblivion, death, the end?  I don’t, and I don’t mind telling you.
